CBC Cologne Broadcasting Center has selected Abit's Powerbox automation system to a launch a new pay TV channel service to be broadcast from its facility in Cologne, Germany. The Powerbox system will control all the essential transmission processes for the three special interest channels launched at the end of last year.
The system provides the capacity to automatically control four channels (three lifestyle channels and one spare) fully integrated with the CBC scheduling and audit systems. Dual playout is provided using main and backup servers with in-line branding using Miranda Intuition devices. Media flow between the buffer storage and designated transmission servers is carried out automatically.
